Still making Christmas goodies for the holiday party and friends. This candy came from my Blue Ribbon cake, CHERRY SMASHED CAKE. I love the cherry delight in each little bite. Yippie done and made a big hit with the hubby as I have said before he is the inspiration behind the Cherry Smashed Cake because of his love of Chocolate covered cherries. Now I can sure say these are tested and passed the test. If hubby is happy I am too. Just imagine your guest at the Christmas parties biting down on one of these little goodies ummm loaded with each bite of sure haven.

    I used a hand mixer but first gave it a good stir with a spoon to mix in the sugar before using the electric mixer so the sugar would not go all over the counter and me.

    Drain the cherry well then crush in a food processor or mini chopper, add to the mixture

    Add the liquerur and cherry juice then begin to mix well and make sure it is stiff. If it is not add some more sugar till it stiffs up enough to make a ball. Place the mixture in the refrigerator till hardend enough to work with.
